Sir, it is observed that a mechanical engg. initially gets less salary as compared to other depts. Like EC or CS. What is the reason behind it?
Surely a mechanical engg gets less salary than a CS or EC engg.,but as the experience increases the salary also grows accordingly. The advantage of a mech. Engg. is that the demand remains in all throughout the time. There is no such lean period for a mech. Engg as observed in EC or CS Depts.
Sir, for me as a mechanical engg., which Dept. is better in terms of better job prospects, better recognition in the company, getting a better salary or vertical movement within the organization?
All Depts. are good, whether it is production, quality, design and development or marketing. Each has its own importance in its own way within the organization. For personal growth as I told you earlier hard work, systematically pre-planning of job, team work and always be innovative matters much.
